About Girardi Odilla

My name is Odilla. I am very passionate about travel and good food. I am the owner of Villa Pulciana. I have run this country house with enthusiasm since 2009 and over the years I have had a lot of satisfaction from my customers. Since the beginning, this work has become rather like a hobby, it allows me to meet new people with whom I have established good relations. My goal is always for the guests to spend an unforgettable holiday in Italy.

Girardi Odilla purchased this villa in 2003

Why Girardi Odilla chose Città della Pieve

I choose this property for the quiet, the charme of the house and the beautiful panoramic view of the surrounding countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an incredible vacation at Villa Pulciana. The Villa was simply perfect for our group. We had every meal on the terrace and the view in simply unbelievable. But this is only half of it. Odilla and Jacopo made our trip perfect. The excursions, cooking class, and Tuscan diner were well appreciated. Odilla was always available to help us organize our day and even went above and beyond to help us organize an outdoor screening of a movie ! I would highly recommend this Villa and look forward to going back soon!

dire meravigliosa è riduttivo

un casale del quattrocento restaurato ed ammobiliato in maniera esclusiva e perfetta sia all'interno che all'esterno con una piscina fantastica e un angolo barbecue veramente bello. La signora Odilla proprietaria dell'immobile è di una gentilezza infinita.

Perfect again

  • 5 of 5

This year we stayed the second time in the villa. The house is fantastically located in the hills between Citta della Pieve and Fabro. We are a large group with 3 Generations. Like last year, it was a perfect holiday again. In the large villa, we had all the space. Odilla and her family were perfect hosts again and had everything prepared for our large group. The wonderful pool was a great pleasure for all, especially for the children. We enjoyed sit together, to eat or to grill. The view on the great terrace is wonderful.

It was perfect again and we hope to return in the next years.

Fabian with family

VILLA PULCIANA angolo di paradiso in Umbria

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso a Villa Pulciana alcuni giorni (troppo pochi) di meraviglioso relax: Natura incontaminata, paesaggio stupendo e rilassante che abbiamo potuto ammirare, non solo dalla piscina invitante, ma anche dalla meravigliosa loggia, da dove a pranzo e a cena potevamo ammirare un panorama mozzafiato. Non dimenticheremo le serate trascorse a chiaccherare sotto le stelle cullati dal canto dei grilli. Stiamo già pensando quando ritornare....

Consigliamo vivamente un soggiorno a Villa Pulciana.

Grazie, Sig.ra Odilla per averci ospitati e "coccolati".

Un abbraccio Gino, Antonella, Maria, Antonio, Lidia, Gabriele

Owner's Response: Carissimi tutti, vi ringrazio molto, prima di tutto per essere tornati a Villa Pulciana e poi per il bel review che mi avete scritto. Ricordavo con piacere il vostro affiatato gruppo ed è stato bello rivedervi. E' sembrato che il tempo non fosse proprio passato per voi: stesso entusiasmo, stessa allegria e complicità e comunione di interessi che dimostravate alcuni anni fa. Grazie davvero di tutto e speriamo di rivederci presto. Un abbraccio a voi tutti. Odilla

pure beauty. great for families

  • 5 of 5

The villa is absolutely stunning - it is situated in a gorgeous and peaceful place, breathtaking views, with the most amazing pool, and a fantastic wood oven that had made our Italy vacation a very authentic Italian experience. The rooms are comfortable, and most have their own bathrooms - so it's very easy if you share it with other families. We were four families with kids and had great time. You should bear in mind it is somewhat far from the closest village (about half an hour drive) - which can be a benefit or a bit of a hassle - depending on your state of mind. We loved it. The only thing that was less than perfect was the kitchen (or actually the kitchens - as there were three) which were small for this kind of property and could have been better equipped (though I am yet to encounter better equipped kitchens in rental villas - it seems to be a common problem).

When we pulled into the driveway at villa pulciana it took my breath away , I couldn't believe this was going to be my home for a week!!

The grounds are stunning and the pool was amazing!! The villa was very clean and so inviting ! Plenty of room and space. Everything about this Villa was top notch !! Odilla (the owner) was kind and helpful and went above And beyond to make our stay enjoyable. She booked a wine tour for us , got to know our children's names , was always smiling and happy and obviously loves the Villa and it shows !!

We will most definitely return 😊
